My Approach to Helping

Life is about growth. We are constantly outgrowing previous versions of ourselves including the painful experiences that we bring along on our journeys. We live in emotional phases, which grow and dissipate with the life transitions that shape us. I will be here with you throughout the process in its entirety as you sculpt and mold your narrative while achieving the self-concept that describes your best self.

As your therapist, one of my priorities is to walk alongside you as you grow into the best version of yourself, embracing your individuality and strengths. It can be difficult to balance internal safety and values with the external commotion in the world. A sense of disillusionment occurs when our external desires do not meet our internal needs. I focus on self-esteem as it relates to excessive moods, personality shifts, and maladaptive thinking patterns. Working collaboratively to assist you in reaching your best emotional, mental, and spiritual alignment is the focus of my practice. I draw from humanistic, psychodynamic, interpersonal, and cognitive behavioral foundations and offer an integrative approach that fits to your individualistic needs.

I understand that therapy can be a difficult journey to engage in, but I will be here to support you every step of the way. I am dedicated to helping you engage and adjust as comfortably as you can. I believe that it is important to engage collaboratively within a journey that will help to deconstruct maladaptive narratives and, further, reconstruct adaptive narratives that benefit you in achieving your goals.
